If the only damage is to your car and the accident did not result in any property damage to anyone else then you can refuse payment and close the claim without settlement and should be able to avoid any negative impact on your rates. If on the other hand there is damage to another vehicle or property that will be paid by your insurance company then you might as well take what you can from your insurance company for your vehicle.

I don't know exactly how AIG is setup but tickets and accidents usually stay on your insurance for 3yrs. During that 3yr. time frame you will have points on your insurance, the more points the higher the premium. Some companies will look back as far as 5yrs. If your accident is older than 3yrs. but still within 5 it my affect how your policy is tiered. The accident at that point my not cost you any points but because you have had a ticket or accident in the last 5yrs. you may be placed in a different tier than someone with a clean driving record because you are considered higher risk.

You cannot pass on your premium membership to someone else, but you can buy (for $5) a premium membership item in tf2 and then trade it to someone (or you could give them $2.5 and tell them to buy any item of that value, for example a key. This will also make them premium and it is cheaper to do). Making a TF2 account premium will not affect your steam account.
